A Winter Piece William Cullen Bryant Come when the rains Have glazed the snow and clothed the trees with ice, While the slant sun of February pours Into the bowers a flood of light. Approach! The incrusted surface shall upbear thy steps And the broad arching portals of the grove Welcome thy entering. You can find this poem in William Cullen Bryant: Complete Poetical Works.
